At EROC 2017, the European Roller Derby Organizational Conference, at the end of January in Berlin, I had the great pleasure to attend a workshop talking more generally about announcing. It was held by sMACklemore, an independent announcer, who did little events as tournament head announcer such as the Men’s World Cup in Calgary 2016 […]
This pattern was mostly an experiment with a multicoloured Wollmeise yarn I had still lying around. But hey, why not have a fancy sweatband! You need about 25g of fingering yarn and 2.5 mm double-pointed needles. Multicoloured yarn adds the nice colour-effect. Abbreviations: k — knit p — purl k2tbl — knit 2 stitches through […]

My PhD work focuses on the experiences the children […]

This is just a colour pattern, that I used as a substitute in a Norwegian Sweater, but I wanted to share that with peeps in order they want to conduct a similar feat. It has been created with a sense of symmetry and triangles. It came originally not with the hourglass idea, but upon actually […]
Last year my sister got a loop made with Manos del Uruguay’s Silk Blend (Luisa). This year I also made her a matching hat of from the same wool upon request as a thank you for proof reading my Master’s thesis. This weekend I had a visit from her and told her that there was […]
